Sit to Stand Workstations

Portland District Health’s Leadership Group members have been encouraging staff to trial a sit-to-stand workstation. This is a SEA Change initiative to encourage staff to be aware of and to try to minimise prolonged sitting which is classified and ‘sedentary behaviour’.

Sedentary behaviour is associated with poorer health outcomes, including an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. It is recommended adults minimise the amount of time spent in prolonged sitting and break up long periods of sitting as often as possible (Australia’s Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines).
